.6 nozzle in U3

Recommended Posts

You can select either the 0.4 or the 0.8 and manually change the line width.You may have to experiment a bit to make sure you do not over extrude or under extrude. Layer heights will work just the same though. :)

You will mostly be better off selecting the AA0.4 as this will give you more profiles vs using a 0.8 as a starting point.  When you made the changes to the priofile, like line width around 0,55 - 0,6  and other stuff you need, safe as a new profile, call it something with 0.6 in the name and next time you good to go.

I'm currently testing a Solex Hardcore 0.6 as well. Not done yet, but, at least for a 0.3 layer width, you'll want to print slower and hotter with PLA. The standard 200°C and 70mm/s of the generic profile results in underextrusion. I'm currently testing at 220°C and around 50mm/s. Still not that good, maybe 215°C would make the PLA less viscous.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
